I walked by this penshop hundreds of times in my Boston years. Mostly window shopping, I finally entered and it felt like a kid entering a toy shop. Glorious inventory and staff obviously engaged with their merchandise. I recommend it.

I have visited this shop religiously on my yearly visits to Boston. I have never been disappointed by either selection or service. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and have bailed me out of many fountain pen faux-pas!
